    S1, Week 5

    Ok, no User games this week, all CPU. This will really see if the new sliders are good or not. Also, those with Byes do your recruiting in a timely manner, I will not wait, no one likes waiting for people to recruit when they could have done it in ten minutes. Thats just the penalty of missing the advance.


    Week 5 Big Matchups



    Wisconsin @ Michigan St (Masler)

    Ohio St @ Illinois (Hova) - Big Matchup of the Week

    Northwestern (Kzoo) @ Minnesota

    Notre Dame @ Boston College (priest)

    Miami (FL) @ Clemson (tbrown)

    Stanford (chris) @ Oregon

    Washington (bmore) @ USC

    wow I struggled like hell with these sliders lol not sure how some are blowing out big teams. I BARELY beat ND. Literally went down to final seconds of game. Missed extra point was the difference. Maybe just one of those games but my game was more like heisman level to me lol. ND gave me all I could handle. Of course my game was in the rain and I fumbled like 5 times and had to protect the ball the whole damn game while the cpu was steadily running over all my guys and never fumbled once lol.

    Lol these sliders will be tough on us crappy schools, I don't understand why '11 has so many fumbles, I experience at least 2-3 a game myself. But yea, it was pretty much realistic ND gave you all you could handle. I'm also glad the CPU running game is stronger.

    I was absolutely horrendous running the football in my game against Stanford. They were ALL OVER my option plays. I couldn't run Power O, I couldn't run counters, and only occasionally did I get a good option play for some yardage.

    32 runs for 88 yards is pretty abysmal. As usual when the computer gives me a close game, everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. My guys drop key 3rd down passes or my QB overthrows a wide open WR. Sooo frustrating.

    Honestly I felt pretty lucky to beat Stanford given I really struggled on the ground.

    On the positive side I liked how the CPU was able to move the chains more and actually control T.O.P. a lot more than they have in the past. They had 22 rushes for about 103 yards or 4.5ish per carry. Very nice.

    Anyway, it took a 10 point effort in the 4th for me to win if that's any indication of the sliders.

    It is weird that I have yet lose anybody or sign anybody off my board yet. Not a single one.

    Hopefully with my win over #10 Miami this week gets at least one person to commit.

    Hurricanes had 6 turnovers in my game, that is why they were blown out. Tough game offensively for me though. Their DBs and DLine were tough. Enjoyed it though.

    Maybe you are going after recruits outside your pipeline? And maybe they are too high caliber?

    I'm only going after recruits in my pipeline and I've found success

    So far I love the CPU. It was hard to stop the running game, but still seemed fair. HOWEVER, the kicking game for the CPU is really really pathetic. Two missed Extra Points by a wide margin? That should be fixed.

    I just dominated Wisconsin, they had a great running game but TERRIBLE passing..that's what did them in. So far everything looks legit but if anyone sees a huge flaw let me know. I know The Experience is changing things up a bit but that is because we all have powerhouses basically and not mid level teams.

    Agreed. I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary in my game.

    If I can play tonight with the servers, I will.

    Do we have a standard advance schedule? If we do I'd like to know what it is.
